For the fifth consecutive year, the Threshers win the KCAC Conference tournament and earn a bid to the National tournament. Coach Isaac is very exctied to return to nationals with this group of players. "This was another great day for our women's tennis program. It is always important in tournament play to get off to an early start in doubles and we were able to get 3-0 leads in both matches. KW really fought hard in this match and even though the scores might not indicate it, we had to play very well. This is a great group of women to coach and I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks and seeing what we can do at nationals."
